I don't know... if he were a troll, would he have bothered with such a long post? I would expect something more along the lines of "Cats r stupid, ur all stupid crazy cat ppl". :p

It may seem strange that someone would bother typing up a long post and not mean well but the truth is people do it all the time.

I'd be very surprised if this person responds to anything we've said and if he does, his response will likely be full of attitude and sarcasm, just like his first post.

I have been a moderator on other boards before and believe me when I tell you there are people who will indeed spend the time to write a long post to play with people. They will come back to check on the responses and get a laugh out of it.

If he is a troll, he must be disappointed that this didn't turn into a flame war. Instead people gave thoughtful suggestions for his problem and good ideas which probably helped others, instead of taking the bait that was offered. We love cats, and if their owners are less than what we think they should be, we still give the best advice we can that will help the cat. That's what makes TCS a great community.

Same thing happened to me - I posted a response last week suggesting that he might be a troll, but it got deleted for some reason. Considering he hasn't come back to thank anyone for their advice, or to defend himself against those calling him a troll, it sounds like he probably is a troll.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

sorry for being stupid...

but is a troll someone who joins a forum just to make a post that will tick people off? And the post is just fake information??

thanks

And I agree, I thought the post might have been fake, if not than may God help those kitties and that family! lol

basically yes. some people have nothing better to do with their time than deliberately try to antagonise others.

and you're not stupid.

I thought the OP's post was hilarious! As for my 2 cents, I'd say just get rid of your cats. My cats live in the backyard and come and go as they please, so it's never a problem, but I'd probably feel a little like you if they lived in the house.

I saw the humor in it as well. Anybody that can say that they pets haven't seriously pushed their patience at times either is a saint, hasn't had pets for very long or is just plain lying.


I guess that I'm a terrible, terrible person for telling my critters that I'm going to kill them or beat them to death. Some times I even chase my cats out of the kitchen and make them go upstairs and stay for a while. I even keep a spray bottle around just for squirting the cats. Oh and I have 3 inside cats and only two litter boxes for them. Both of those are upstairs right next to each other. They are however in a seperate room from the cat fountain.

Sure my pets have tried my patience; however I would NEVER say I was gonna kill them or make comments like the OP had about them!

Agreed! Of course they try my patience, as does everyone and everything at times, but making threats is not something I would do. Especially in writing!

Tab- thanks for answering my question

I think the OP THOUGHT he was being funny but I found it more sarcastic than humourous. I too believe he is a troll. They come to post just for reactions.

Having your pets test your patience and threatening to strangle/kill them are 2 different things. When his child tests his patience will he threaten to kill the child too? Chasing cats out of a room is sometimes necessary for safety reasons, i.e., hot stove while cooking, etc. Spraying cats with water is nasty and dangerous. If water should get in their ears they can get a serious infection. If your cats don't mind 2 boxes to share amongst the 3 of them that's not an issue. I would hope they are scooped at least twice a day though.

This poster IMO came here for a reaction and that's what he got - both good and bad.
